The Cobra Ironman 70.3 in Cebu is no different from the course last year. This isn’t because of a lack of interest from the organizers to keep it interesting but simply because “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” The course went through several iterations over the past 6 years and this has been the layout that works best.
This year’s TriUnited Exceed Long Distance event is very similar to last year’s race. This might actually be a good thing since I’m sure there are a lot of athletes racing this with a chip on their shoulders. Having raced the course for the first time last year, everyone had a really tough time conquering the challenges each leg brought.
One of the most awaited races of the year just went through a major revamp. This year’s Regent 5150 will have significant changes to the swim, bike, and run courses; don’t fret because we will discuss everything in detail in this edition of Practical Race Execution Preview powered by Sante Barley!
If you want a refreshingly unique kind of race, Durianman is perfect for you.
While I have nothing against all the races in Subic bay (Disclaimer: I love racing there because of course familiarity, organization, and convenience), sometimes, it’s nice to break out of the norm and try something different. Durianman is a race that’s both comfortable yet challenging, unique yet familiar, exotic yet close to home.
The whole athletic world was glued to the livestream of Nike’s #Breaking2 attempt last May 6 for good reason. The event itself was more than just a marketing stunt by Nike nor a world record attempt; it was an experiment that tested the limits of both human physiology and technology. The goal was quite simple, break the longstanding 2hr marathon barrier. Of course, this is easier said than done.
